Starbucks First Business To Kickstart Beverley Gateway Development

A Starbucks drive-through franchise is the first business to sign up to space at the forthcoming Beverley Gateway development.

A petrol filling station is also planned for the scheme at the former Teckno Developments site on Killingwoldgraves Lane – a wallpaper and fabric pattern books factory destroyed by fire 14 years ago. Lovel Developments, which is behind the scheme, says it expects to announce further arrivals in the coming weeks with the potential for 30 new jobs.

The Starbucks outlet will be operated by franchise partner 23.5 Degrees which has more than 100 other stores across the country. Beverley Gateway is said to be the firm’s first move into East Yorkshire.

Philip Lovel, managing director of Lovel Developments, said: “We will be starting work in the spring to put in the infrastructure including an access road, an estate road, drainage and lighting. The Starbucks building will be the first to be constructed and we hope to announce details soon of two more businesses at Beverley Gateway.

“Between them the sort of businesses we are looking at have the potential to create a significant number of jobs. The original estimate of 30 jobs was based on a filling station, coffee shop and some business units. The final figure will depend on the nature of the businesses we bring in and their staffing needs. It will be a high quality development which brings a derelict site back into use and is still in keeping with the wider rural area.”

Andrew Pickett, property director for 23.5 Degrees said: “We now have more than 100 Starbucks stores with ambitious plans for growth and a target of reaching 300 stores by 2028. We are excited about being the first businesses at Beverley Gateway and our use of modular design and build will enable us to be up and running soon after completion of the site works.”
